My old photo albums- Treasure of my lifeYesterday, I was searching for my academic documents and found one folder with my school and college time photo albums. I was very much delighted to see those albums. While I was having a glance at my old photos, my son joined me. He was surprised and excited to see the collection of hard copies of the photographs. He asked me, "Mumma, why do you have so many photos printed out of your own when all my photos are kept in the hard disk?" I smiled and explained to him about the old camera we were using with rolls.
It led me to my old times when we used to think multiple times before clicking any photo because the camera was having limited clicks available in a single roll and then the expenses of getting them washed. And the story does end here, we also needed a photo album to arrange them in proper sequence. So every click, every photo was precious to us.
The definition of photos as memory has completely changed with digital cameras and mobile as we click so many photos and then delete them whenever we feel like it. The value of photos is depreciated with digitalization. These are my own thoughts and would like to have your honest thoughts on the same.
